Dusting of snow sticks to cold surfaces in NE Moncton, 28 April 2016 (Dearing)


After receiving less than half a centimetre of snow this April in Greater Moncton, a dusting of snow fell just two days before month end.

Temperatures have been chilly this week in New Brunswick with a few record lows broken – Moncton was close at -5.5 C on 26 April.

The jet stream has taken a southern dip over Eastern Canada allowing cold Arctic air to sink south.

But forecasters say more seasonal weather is coming as we begin the month of May.
